Dining out gives parents a break from the kids and kids a break from having to dress up like tiny waiters. Give the brood a night off with today’s Groupon to Alfoccino in Auburn Hills. Choose between the following options:
- For $14, you get $28 worth of authentic Italian fare for dinner, served after 3 p.m.
- For $8, you get $16 worth of authentic Italian fare for lunch, served before 3 p.m.
Alfoccino's culinarians merge Old World flavors with a homemade spread of tasty breads and savory sauces to forge an inimitable Italian dining experience within a bright and lavish milieu. Served square or round, the dinner menu’s troika of fresh pizzas includes the Boss’s Special, which imbues taste buds with beef tenderloin and crisp veggies ($16.95 for a small; $25.95 for a large). Unfurl bibs for saucy rendezvous with hearty half slabs of ribs ($15.25), or unbridle galloping appetites in a hunt for the Italian Stallion’s meaty mélange of imported salami, ham, provolone, and signature Italian dressing ($9.50). Escorted by slurp-ready sides of spaghetti and bottomless bowls of salad, the eggplant parmigiana bedecks its lightly breaded frame in decadent strata of house-made tomato sauce and fresh cheeses ($15.95). Midday diners can peruse a similar lunch menu that brims with salads, pastas, and sandwiches while taking a much-needed break from business meetings or executive-level staring contests.
Situated just a hop, a skip, and a jump from the Palace of Auburn Hills, Alfoccino’s outdoor patio allows diners to reflect on concerts, sporting events, and enigmatic parking attendants as they sip on local and globetrotting wines by the glass or the bottle.
